CORONA, Calif. (AP) - At least nine construction workers were injured Friday night after a partial bridge collapse at the 91 freeway undercrossing, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported.

All of the victims were crew members on a project to widen the bridge, and they were transported to the nearest hospital in unknown conditions, KABC-TV said.

Part of the East Grand Boulevard undercrossing collapsed about 11:10 p.m., said Cheryl Donahue, of the Riverside County Transportation Commission.

The construction project began in 2014 as an initiative to widen the 91 Freeway with one regular lane and two toll lanes in each direction, KABC reported.
